Working out of the creatively charged Spells’ Lab in a converted Airstream trailer, Good Spells fuses nostalgic nuances of solo synth and sample work with ambient sound design and dark-pop aesthetics. With a background in producing for others and overseeing commercial recording studios, his solo venture embodies a passion for alt-genre, synth-driven music, and traditional song-writing.
